Hi, I'm Patricia
Here's a little bit more about me...
Initially I trained as a psychologist and later qualified as a client-centred and integrative psychotherapist in 2006. I work from the humanistic and integrative perspective and so I believe that you are the expert on your life. So for me counselling/therapy is not about giving advice or prescribing solutions. Rather I believe that every person can find their own way forward when they are involved in a safe therapeutic relationship. Additionally, I believe the the body is a huge resource in therapy and so I incorporate body-psychotherapy as well as traditional talk therapy particularly in my work with trauma.
I also work in a group setting with people who have attempted suicide or who are struggling with suicidal ideation. I lecture as a core-faculty member on the Dublin Counselling & Therapy Centre’s Masters Programme in Counselling and Psychotherapy as well as on a number of trauma training courses and I have been involved in the training of counsellors and psychotherapists since 2008.
I also provide webinars and workshops in areas of mental health including anxiety, mindfulness, self-care and developing happiness.
